Benefits of an ATS system

There are many benefits of using an ATS system, for example, the hiring team will avoid mistakes, reduce the time to hire, cut down on the cost per hire, and improve the quality of the hires. Plus, positions will be filled more quickly and administrative work will be minimal.

What does an application tracking system do?

One of the basic functions of the ATS system is to automatically screen resumes and applications to save companies and employers time from manually weeding out the candidates that are not qualified. In many cases, the system filters applications automatically based on given criteria such as keywords, skills, former employers, years of experience and schools attended.

During the process of hiring, the ATS system also allows recruiters and hiring managers to submit feedback and note about a candidate for better collaboration. With the automated email reminder function, it lets candidates feel more connected and informed, and makes the following interview schedules easier.
